the excitement that surrounded the barack obama election. it is what i took to be a lot of press commentary and outside the press that we had just gone through some kind of watershed, a signal of and. the election of barack obama was unquestionably a special event. it went beyond that pretty went to questions of a major transformation in the party system, people talked about an expected a large surge in the turnout of the election. many americans and academics and commentaries outside academia talked about a decline in the republican base. generally, there was a sense that existed out there that may still be there to some degree that we did not just watch election in which the incumbents were defeated and a new group of the democrats won but rather an election where something, in some sense, transformational happened. in many past elections there is always the story of something special that happened in the election. as an attribute of american politics, we have a penchant of looking elections where something special happens. i decided to take a look at that. i realized it is not an easy th

one statement to say. i know it is not hard for obama to want to kill other muslims because i'm not sure he is a christian. i did not say we need to send more troops to afghanistan because the pakistanis are stepping up and with both of us working together, i think we can come to a conclusion over there. then we will not have to worry about anymore terror attacks. thank you. host: thank you and thanks to all of you for your calls and comments. of course, we will have the prime minister from india here at the white house for a news conference this morning and the state dinner tonight, 6:00 on the west coast. tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m. here on the washington -- on the "washington journal" we can continue the conversation. enjoy the rest of your day. . . >> we will take you live to the white house for the joint news conference with president obama and the indian prime minister. later, a look at the global food shortage. >> thanksgiving day, at 10:00 eastern bill clinton is on hand to present steven spielberg with an award. from the jfk library and museum, nick burns on terrori
and confusing. but one thing is clear -- president obama and the democrats have cut a dirty deal with the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries. obama took single payer off the table. and in exchange, the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries supported his drive for reform. that is why harry and louise, once again paid for by big pharma, are back on the air, this time arguing for passage of the democratic health care legislation. there are 88 members of the house who say they support single payer. yet only congressmen dennis kucinich and eric massa courageously stood up and voted earlier against president obama and against nancy pelosi and against steny hoyer and against the democratic leadership of congress. kucinich called the democratic bill, a bailout under a blue cross. nasa said the bill would enshrine in law the monopolistic powers -- massa said the bill would enshrine in law the monopolistic powers of the private health insurance industry. single payer action today is calling on the 88 single payer supporters in the house to stop hiding. come out, come out wherever you
think that this is a metaphor. we have not had president obama with the kinds of swings in the approval that bill clinton did. . . . >> you have to look at both of the obamas. you have to look at the polling. i do an opinion poll with a democrat, what how we describe barack obama with these numbers. we did the 14 attributes, and he's put these between the personal ratings, and things -- these are things that have to do with his job. he averaged a 61% rating. although those ratings have slipped, he had really declined in the job rating. this is a country that, given the problems, they wanted the president to be successful. i think these are exacerbated by the economic tension. we are thinking, one year from now, if the economy is not better, who do you blame? bush and the republicans or obama and the democrats. i like the idea, if this is not better, who do you blame? 24 points more said that this was tied. they said, these are your ideas. i think that we will be turning into -- we will have a very good 2010, but just like 1982 and 1994, this does not mean very much for 2012. my other qu

. >> are we beginning to see the outlines though of an obama strategy? >> we are and trying to piece it together it's hard to come up with sort of specific numbers, but what we are seeing is that this is more likely to be a process, wolf, than the president coming out and saying we're going to do "x" number of troops, but what he's going to do is set benchmarks or targets for afghanistan and pakistan to meet. in other words, in afghanistan, you've got to -- you've got to be more independent, set up your troops, get rid of corruption. pakistan, start targeting al qaeda, start targeting militants. the big question, wolf, we don't know if they don't meet those benchmarks what do we do then? what's our stick, you know, because we're there for us, we're not there for them. >> it also looks like the administration is beginning to rethink the entire strategy in dealing with the recently re-elected hamid karzai? >> yeah. i spoke with one administration source who said to me let's just call it a recalibration because obviously this is an administration that's been very disappointed in karzai,
that president obama signed last january was way too small. the economy needs a second big infusion. conservative-leaning economists say no. they say it has been wasteful and ineffectual and harmful because it adds to the nation's debt. it says the legislation is helping an economy in a free- fall to grow again and shed fewer jobs that would otherwise have been shed. they say it is roughly on track. they want to avoid cutting teachers, police officers, and other workers. there is more on this story. we will read more but we want your thoughts on the need of a second stimulus package. we are asking you if you think it is a worthy step. you have an opinion on that, please call us. one more story -- this is talking about the jobless rate that was mentioned in the front- page piece. this is a bloomberg news story that you can find in "the new york times." it says that the unemployment rate fell in 10 states including massachusetts, where it declined to 8.9%, new hampshire dropped to 6.9% and west virginia which fell to 8.5%. the number of states with at 10% unemployment held at 14 last month. the sta
that president obama and this administration are not doing the same. far from it. i am honored to be at the side of michelle bachmann, a great congresswoman. a great human being. a true american patriot. to hopefully be a voice of all americans who do not want to pass a obama government run health care. we do not want our freedom of choice taken away from us. president obama has his own obsession with trying to ram this health bill through to create a socialist america. we would be no better off than the european countries of canada and new zealand that suffered greatly from a poor health care system. their system creates many deaths. is that what we want? i agree with you. i say no as well. we, as freedom loving americans must not be scared into obama as radical chicago tactics. his agenda is not for the poor. it is slowly -- solely for his political gain. the lies and propaganda are all very blatant, as shown to us by those who exposed acorn, which is as corrupt as all the president's czars. and obama is willing to deny his connection to acorn, claiming no awareness of his -- of their support
